i just talked to the gm at saturn of rockford and he said that my sky is not even ordered yet because of restrictions on the automatic. :mad: :brentil:

our salesman told my husband last tuesday that they had already got the image on mine and that it should be here by the end of april.

what really pisses me off is we were going to take it on our road trip to alabama the 12th of may for my neices wedding on the 13th of may.

and my sales man is out of the office untill thurday so i can't even yell at him

That is a sad bummer. Did he mention what kind of restraint there is on the automatics? I would think it may not be long before they are available again. I am now prompted to give my dealer a call since I had ordered mine with an auto just the Thursday before ya'll were imaged. I am also going to be sick if I'm told for some strange reason my image hasn't been processed either! Time for a call I think! If I hear anything of interest I'll post it!

ok i am having a really bad morning i tryed to reply to you and it sent my reply out into ciber space into that black hole

no the gm did not say why there was a restraint on the auto's. but he said he has tryed to enter it but it keeps regecting it but did not say how long he has been trying it.

i can tell you one thing for sure that wen my salesman gets back on thurday he is going to get an ear full.
because i am really ticked.

I phoned my dealer and he was with somebody and will hopefully call me back shortly. Were you bumped in line because of this? Yes, I'd be ticked too if I were you. It seems unacceptable that you weren't notified that your order hadn't actually gone through as you'd thought. I don't understand that at all. Stay hopeful, perhaps it will still come sooner rather than later, but I know that's of little consolation if you don't have it by the time you were going out of town. :nonod:

Dealer Order Number

You should ask your salesman for the dealer order Number and have him send you a copy of the printout that the dealership gets when an order is sent in...Then you will be sure the order is in and that all you have ask for was requested....Seal9

If I recall - there is a restriction on Auto's at like 5%... Once there are enough automatics to go over 5% - then no one can order and Auto until the number is back below 5%.... One person could order -- the very next may not be able to.

it just ticks me off because hubby stoped and was talking to them last week and they told him that mine was already ordered and it would be the first one that comes in after the gm's demo. hubby said that jim and the g.m. told him this. so when jim gets back i am going to have a nice little talk with him. and tell him if he knew this and did this to pascifie me that stuff does not fly with me if they knew there was a problem i want to know about it (no sugar coating things ) that happened with our last dealer on a different vehicle.

I hope that I have this correct. I just got back from my dealer checking on my car. He said, (I don't know how accurate I have this) they didn't STOP producing the automatic transmission car, it's just that the dealer can NOT amend any orders from manual to automatic. The automatic transmission already in the que (or something like that) are still ok.

Reason: Demand for the automatics.

Again, I hope I got that correct.
